Description

Function GetName returns the object name of the referenced object. The function returns "None" if the object has no object name.

A handle to layer may not passed to this routine; to obtain a layer name, use GetLName.

FUNCTION GetName(
h  :HANDLE) : STRING;
def vs.GetName(h):
    return STRING

Parameters

h HANDLE Handle to object.

Remarks

(Orso 2016.02.18): If the string 'none' is returned (and not 'None' as stated above) this is not localized. Checked in the German VW.

(Unsigned): This function is a little non-intuitive. If the namestring of object h is empty, this function returns the literal string "none". I don't know what the localization implications of this are.

If the name has been deleted it returns an empty string, so test for both (empty string or "none" string).

Example

VectorScript

ObjectName := GetName(HandleToObject);

Python

ObjectName = vs.GetName(vs.FSActLayer())
